my trusted source at my grow store tells me the AN and GH 3 part are the same. -
dutch master is also a good company that is under-rated they make a product called "zone" its a MUST HAVE for the tool-box copper sulfate essentialy although it kills all microbes its the best thing ive found to fix ROOT ROT problems. 9999999x better then hydrogen peroxide.
-if you want a 2 part earth juice is also a good company at a decent price.
i would personaly stick with AN 2 part, if i DIDNT use connie, id switch to monkey juice (organic 2 part) or floranova(gh 1 part) otherwise with just chems id go with DM/AN/GH or even botanicare. although they have alot of different mixes of PBP(pure blend pro) probably whatever is cheaper, DutchMaster or botanicare are usualy cheaper IME...
(to straight up answer your Q, DM/AN/botanicare are my prefered brands)
although brand isnt indicitive of success, its nice to know how to use nutes in general, reading the ppms before and after mixing in each ingrediant, frequent ph'ing, what the plant wants, reading the plant took me a while(talkin' years..) to master. switching to RO water is more important then buying better nutes, id run lucas/ro before i run connie with tap....
people (myself included) like to blame other for there problems... but ultimately if the grower got a "bad batch" of some nute, its the growers responsibility to be checking the res as he mixes, bad batches arnt always bad, the grower usualy isnt paying enough attention to notice the increase in strength. i used to blindly follow the bottle but keeping the ppm's in perportion is more important then anything.
kind of had some diharrea of the keyboard right now....
trying to share some insight on my methods of thinking.
if a crop fails its my loss, i dont have room to blame a nute batch or company for what is really my responsibilty.
